Exterior construction to be completed mid-August
Construction of a new drive-up window for the Winona Clinic Pharmacy at Winona Health, 855 Mankato Avenue, began on Wednesday, June 20, 2018.
The exterior portion of the project will take approximately eight weeks with an anticipated mid-August completion date. The interior work will take place through September with the new drive-up window becoming operational later this fall.
The new drive-up location was designed for easy access with customer safety and convenience being the top priorities.
“We’re excited that this project is underway,” said Terry Full, RPh, Winona Health director of retail pharmacies. “Winona Health’s Parkview Pharmacy was the first in the area with a drive-up window, and now we’re pleased to continue to add this convenience for our customers on the east side of the building.”
After the new drive-up location is operational, Winona Health retail pharmacies will be consolidated in the clinic location and the pharmacy hours and days will be expanded to support the increased level of patients being seen in the clinic associated with the recent move of Urgent Care onto the main campus. The Parkview Pharmacy location and drive-up window will remain open until the new drive-up window on the east side of the building opens later this fall.
During construction, Winona Health patients and visitors should watch for signage, equipment and barricades as drive aisles and parking spots will be affected. According to Greg Towner, Winona Health facilities director, a partial drive aisle will be open for through traffic as often as possible, but there will be times when traffic along the east side of the clinic will need to be blocked during the project. The ambulance entrance will not be affected during construction.
The construction crew and Winona Health facilities staff appreciate extra caution and patience during construction.
